Elizabeth  Ralph
Elizabeth Ralph
Elizabeth owns a log house in the rural town of Beersheba Springs, Tennessee. This small town on the Cumberland Plateau has a population of about 550 people and many of the women have helped to support their families by making beautiful quilts, some of which are shown here. When furnishing her log house, Elizabeth wanted to bring the colours and beauty of Tennessee quilts into her home and at the same time, support the local crafts people. She continues to collect the finest of the quilts made in this area and now offers them to quilt lovers all over the United States and Canada.

Untitled Document The king size quilt, Homespun, I purchased from Elizabeth Ralph this week is absolutely beautiful. It is just as pictured, and I thank Elizabeth for taking the effort and time to send the extra close-up pictures and description as well as answering questions. She was very prompt and complete with her replies. The quilt is all hand quilted to perfection, no machine top stitching. It is a real treasure! I am a quilter myself so I can appreciate all the time consuming, meticulous handwork. I have made all sizes of quilts over the years, but at my age, I don't feel I can tackle a king size and get it to completion, so buying this one is a nice alternative for me. I am still making smaller items like lap size, wall hanging and twin, and I may contact you at some point if I have one to sell. Thank you for your lovely web site and way to connect with quilters. - Z. Hilton,Tucson, Arizona
